So, I decided to start the year with a post about one of my recent silver purchases.

Just only a few days ago, I used to own five of these little babies. But I gifted two during the Christmas festivities to two good old buddies of mine, which highly appreciated them. What I have find out is that silver not only makes a great gift for yourself but also a great gift for others!

Anyways, as you can see these coins are slightly smaller then the one Euro coin

On the front side we have King George A of Greece (1845-1913) during whom Greece almost doubled it's territory. It reads ΓΕΩΡΓΙΟΣ A ΒΑΣΙΛΕΥΣ ΤΩΝ ΕΛΛΗΝΩΝ for GEORGE I KING OF THE GREEKS

The back side bears the Greek coat of arms and reads Βασίλειον της Ελλάδας 1 ΔΡΑΧΜΗ which translates to Kingdom of Greece 1 DRACHMA

Quick Specs
Composition: Silver (.835)
Weight: 5g
Diameter: 22.9 mm
Thickness: 1.3 mm

Plz note that my coins are beat like hell and are only a far cry of what they originally looked. Most that can be found today for regular prices look more or less like that, probably because they were used daily back in their days.. Still, a nice part of history to own :)

It makes for a good story when you have someone over. At least there is some use for it outside of just HODLing.

I say turn them into an NFT and fractionalize it so we can invest in your collection.

Doesn’t matter what they look like the silver is all that matters. Unless you are looking to be a collector of coins.
